Saturated Canary

I just had to do a little shopping at the delightful Krista's Saturated Canary store recently.  Have you seen her new releases?  They are gorgeous. And I was lucky enough to  win one yesterday in a blog hop from the lovely Coops.  Thank you Coops and thank you Krista!  When I went shopping, I was still coveting some of her less recent images and I picked up three of them.
This one is called Enjoy the Rain and I LOVE her!  You can find her here
I teamed her with my gorgeous DCWV Mariposa papers, coloured her with Copics and added just a word processed sentiment, a button, some ribbon and twine.
"Twine" is the current theme at the Saturated Canary challenge this week
and I am also entering my card in to the following challenges:
Raise the Bar - In the Garden
Deep Ocean - Butterflies
And "Anything goes" at

I've seen lots of recent moans about how badly blogger is behaving at the moment and I must say that it's driving me nuts!   30% of the time I can get into a blog but I can't get into the comment box and 30% of the time I can't get into a blog at all!  I do hope they get it fixed soon!

Hey Lesley I switched over to Google Chrome as my browser instead of Firefox or Internet Explorer. It works like a charm. I never have an issue. Google and Blogger are so they work better together. Give it a try. I LOVE the way you colored your image. These are adorable.
